By Olwen Wymark
**Rosa Parks, The Guild of Students**
At the age of twenty Verity Taylor was charged by the police with damaging a chair by fire in the mental hospital where she was a patient. Later she was committed to Broadmoor “from where she may not be discharged or transferred elsewhere without permission of the Home Secretary”. Using a technique of multiple characterisation, the play seeks to investigate in depth the personality of the young girl, to “find” her – and at the same time studies the effects of her behaviour on the family, the friends and the officials in whose care she is periodically placed.
In this true story, a total of 42 characters are portrayed by only 8 actors in Olwen Wymark’s harrowing and emotional portrayal of a young woman’s turmoil in dealing with a severe schizophrenic condition.
